    yeah migration comes up most years but it was in section B for the long questions instead last year (I think)
    personally I don't think global groupings will come up this year because it has for the last 2 years but who knows!!

    I feel like something on the census might come up? idk Megacities seems very likely though as well as retirement migration possibly?

    They're not compulsory, as long as you know one megacity for an MEDC and one for a developing country you should be good, but I guess the more examples the better!

    I agree with megacities and roots since that hasnt come up in quite some time.
    A tip for anyone doing Edexcel exam board: If you want to get the best marks possible for the 25 marker questions, Try studying the climate change topic and doing that in the exam as the questions are usually repeated/ similar to previous past papers, that what me and my friend have figured out and are dying from geography!
    Hope it helps☺️

    Ahh! I hope your predictions about the Arctic sre true! I'm absolute trash with the Africa stuff and left it 'til last to study. I'd love the Phillippines as a case study like that's a blessing and a half.

    We got some amazing tips for the exam at the RGS study day in February. It was suggested to write the times allocated for each question so you know when to move on! It'll probably work better for unit 2 but you can try it anyway!!

    Just remember it's an area around the North Pole that is a vulnerable environment to climate change.

    Learn how global warming will impact the Arctic (the revision guide splits it down into Environmental, Ecological and Socio-economic impacts). My teacher always said talk about the poor polar bears But you'll get a lot of marks for mentioning Thawing of permafrost releasing more CO2 and methane because it's a natural sink. Then talk about how the Arctic will impact the rest of the world -> Sea level rise -> Global weather patterns.

    It could be the causes of megacity growth or the problems in megacities

    Has anyone got ideas as to what is going to come up this year? I think Philippines and Arctic could come up as they are compulsory and haven't come up since 2014. I also think TNCs and megacities as it wasn't in last years paper..
    Do you think rural-urban migration wil come up?

    I think it could be reasons for rapid growth or the problems created. It may also be how the megacity is becoming sustainable.

    Describe how TNCs are accelerating globalisation? For Roots it coul be about limitations to gathered evidence, where to find it etc. Megacities probably sustainability this year, impacts of intense urbanisation or be sneaky and link it into world at risk and get us to talk about vulnerability. Hmmm
